This is a spin primed New Haven Electric clock from the late 20' or early 30's. All parts of the clock is original. The clock is 12.5" X3.25". The figures with the clock base measure 7.25" tall. The figures are holding chains on both sides of the clock, in both hands like they are getting ready to move it. I can't find a model number anywhere on it.

The clock was an estate sell item and was found on a workbench in a garage in Palo Alto CA. The cord is and plug are original. The insulation was worn where the cord had gotten worn on the metal back entering the clock and has been wrapped with electricians tape. The clock still runs but has to be primed a few times, it has a power indicator on the face of the clock, which features a little black and white disk that revolves when the clock is running. The clock is silent and does not grind even after running a full day of running, keeps excellent time. The alabaster base has a few fleabites on it. The figures are in perfect shape for their age with a few scratches on them.

    I love clocks. Don't know anything about the various names or inner workings of such wonderful time pieces, but I still have an appreciation for creativity and beautiful. Very nice rlwindle.

    I thought so also, it popped up on Ebay as a Buy It Now, and I bought it. One of my favorite top five clocks.
